Savage Kick Volume Ten (Zippy)
I really have no explanation for this kind of thing. My sole LP from the "Savage Kick" series which you could find in the browsers of the more louche record shops many moons ago. There they were, right beside "Stompin'!" and "Desperate Rock 'n' Roll" and other comps of rare singles by artists you had often never heard of. The early volumes on the Savage Kick label were titled "Black Rock 'n' Roll" which is a fair enough description of the contents. Later, some of the Savage Kick collections appeared on CD, with 30 tracks on each disc. A lot of the tracks also turned up in a rough-as-a-badger's-arse double boxset (30 CDs in all) called "Rhythm & Blues Goes Rock 'n' Roll" on The International Music label.
Expect haphazard selection, variable sound quality and no background info. Guess that's why people bought these things in the first place. Oh yeah and the artwork defies description, as you can see.
A plea - can anyone tell me anything about tenor sax maniac Little Walkin' Willie, apart from the fact that 6 of his tracks appeared on the Official CD "Little Walkin' Willie Meets Jesse Allen"? Any further info would be most gratefully received.
